The Wildfire of Our Time
Mankind has discovered a new fire and it's energy is breathing something incredible into the framework of this world. We're running towards the humbling flame with our sticks in hand, in awe of the emanating heat, innately driven to hold it's potential. There are a large number of people circled around it now; all watching the smoke billow up into the clouds and wondering with awe what this means for the future. One by one, the word spreads of what we've found and a new wave of humanity rushes over the earth. Watch how quickly the world lights up.
Like wildfire, the Internet is fueling our technological renaissance.
We're connected like never before. All the knowledge of humanity now shines like a beacon in the palm of our hands - and that beacon is getting smaller, more compact, more accessible, and more directly entwined in our genetic makeup. Innovation is being driven by the seeking mind of human nature; which has a relentless craving for understanding. What is our purpose?
Our progression towards understanding is accelerating through this shared, communal desire to expand the limits of the fire. Yet this acceleration is in a state of infancy. Underneath the deep quest to understand life itself, we're still figuring out how to best utilize the flame. I once got a fortune cookie that read "the clash of ideas is the sound of freedom." Righteous. This is where we are. Bouncing our feelings and beliefs and theories off each other to peel back the layers and connect with one another. The potential is majestic and surely infinite.
Now we have the ability to communicate with anyone, anywhere in the world, in an instant; this communication driving the innovation and change that we seek. The internet is diffusing our borders and boundaries, moving us fluidly in the direction of a global tribe. It's seems like it's only a matter of time.
With our new-found sense of community on the planet comes an awakening to the influence of love. The connection strengthens every day. We're awakening to ourselves and everyone else we share this earth with. The fire grows fuller in the night. And all the while, time sends the wave that we surf through this life, fire in hand and heart, as we glide steady towards the message of the One. Of existence.
